Hendrix Coat Should Bring Big Bids

A coat that Jimi Hendrix wore just hours before his death is expected to fetch a huge sum at auction.  The long, custom tailored gray garment with flared sleeves was forgotten by Hendrix when he left the home of a Lord he was visiting in the Notting Hill section of London either on the night he died or a day earlier.  The coat was later given to an appraiser in payment for assessing the value of it and other rock memorabilia the unnamed Lord had acquired.  The appraiser, Ted Owen, stashed the coat in his mother's house and assumed it had gone out with other clothing of his that his mum had gotten rid of a decade ago.  He came across the coat in a suitcase in his mother's house earlier this summer.  The auction of the coat will be conducted by the Fame Bureau on August 24.
